…and her front’s in the show too!
Very excited to announce my next project: Mrs Hudson’s Christmas Corker!
A right royal knees up of a Christmas jolly set in the most famous kitchen in literary history and staged in the most beautiful of hidden theatres in London. The venerable Mrs H. is brought to life by the brilliant Spymonkey (featuring the fabulous Sophie Russell) and the fantastic Ed Gaughan. Thanks to the beautiful staff at Wilton’s! It’s great to be back. See you all in the Mahogany Bar for an egg nogg.
Dates: 2nd December 2014 – 31st December 2014
Written by Bob and Barry Cryer
In association with Spymonkey
Directed by Ed Gaughan
Designed by Lucy Bradridge
Situated in the kitchen of the celebrated 221B Baker Street, this riotous production contrasts the minutiae of a landlady’s daily domestic routine with the grand opera of Conan Doyle’s Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle.
Witness the tale of what really happens below stairs in an affectionate yet hilarious take on the Holmes legend, using music hall routines, tatty magicians, cod ventriloquists, lady boxers and perhaps even a death defying finale worthy of Moriarty himself! Mulled wine and Christmas trees come as standard.
Special New Year’s Eve party! Book early to avoid disappointment, as they say!
Created by actor & writer, Bob Cryer, with his veteran comedy writer father, Barry, and in collaboration with the ultra talented Spymonkey company, all deftly wrapped up with a ribbon by director Ed Gaughan.
